“Convenient and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

The Speedbird Inn is a very convenient and ideally located hotel at Aberdeen Airport, being just a short walk from the terminal building. I found the rooms to be very comfortable if not basic. The food in the restaurant/bar was fantastic, this is an ideal airport hotel with friendly and helpful staff.

If you are wanting a basic hotel near the airport and can get a good rate. This is the place for you.

Staff were friendly and helpful, but the building itself is a bit depressing in a modern community centre style. I enjoyed the breakfast and once again the staff were great

Rooms are spacious, clean and quite impressive. The clientele appeared to be exclusively oil and gas workers, so i guess they will always be busy due to the location and proximity to the airport.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay. I'm pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay. It's always great for the team to know that they are rated as friendly and helpful; especially useful in a hotel whose customers have early morning flights to work!

Look forward to seeing you again soon.

Stayed one night to get early Wed flight (0600) to Amsterdam. £100 paid in advance for room only was not cheap! Hotel gas restaurant/bar attached but bar was not appealing and not hungry after sandwich en route from Inverness. Room clean and basic but perfectly OK. No safe or mini-bar. Five mins walk to terminal via hire car car park so went to WH Smith for drink+sandwich.

Courtesy bus to terminal but decided to stroll as, at 0458, the driver was only planning to do the 2 minute trip at 0515... If you can't walk it, you might like to know there is no lift - stick to ground floor!

Room Tip: No lift to upper floor!

Thank you for your review. The hotel always aims to deliver competitive pricing in the Aberdeen Airport market. Your Tuesday night Advance Purchase Rate of £100 represents a 20% discount off the more flexible Best Available Rate as you booked considerably in advance of your stay. A cheaper hotel room price on what is a key night of the week would be difficult to find.

The hotel's courtesy bus runs every 15 minutes to a variety of destinations. Guests are asked at check-in if they need transport in the morning with a seat booked in their name if they do. Your comments indicate that the bus was booked for a different run at 5am but would have been able to take you after that. It is a good idea to book transport when you check in, especially if you're tight for time in the morning.

I stayed here for one night - Saturday the last weekend in June. It was fantastic. I got a great rate at only £47/night. For two people that is a steal.

We were allowed to check in mega early at around 9am, as my flight landed around 8:30am. This allowed us to drop off our bags and get to exploring the area. We had free parking as well, and the receptionists were extremely friendly and helpful with everything we could need.

The rooms and bathrooms were clean, & the windows opened. I didn't have breakfast at the attached bar because of the reviews I'd read on here.

It was also literally walking distance to the airport! I would 100% stay here again!

Thank you for your review, it's great to read that you enjoyed your stay and that you'd stay again 100%!

The hotel team is encouraged to be friendly and helpful, so it's good to read that that was your experience. It's a shame that you missed breakfast as I'm sure that you would have enjoyed it as well.

Look forward to seeing you on your next visit.

Typical by the airport hotel, not much to say except that it is convenient (if you need to catch a plane, or even as a cheaper alternative to staying in town) and inexpensive. The shower, however, has "power" only in the metaphorical sense of the term. On the plus side, the curtains really do block 100% of the light! which in Scotland during the summer is most definitely a good thing.

Dear Massimo,

Thank you for your review. The hotel is certainly convenient, being the closest hotel to Aberdeen Airport, and does exactly as designed to, which is to cater for the transient traveller.

It's been possible to identify the bedroom you stayed in, so your shower will be checked to make sure that it is working properly.

Look forward to welcoming you back next time you travel from the United States.

Kind regards

We booked this hotel for its proximity to Aberdeen Airport (about 300M door to door) and because included in the price was up to 15 days parking. Hotel was easy to find staff were very friendly and no problem with parking. Airport is just a very short walk away but if required their is a free shuttle bus.
Clean room, evening food good in the bar. Would definitely use them again

Room Tip: No real problems wit aircraft noise so probably any room would do. Mind you we were only there one n...

This is a nice hotel very close to the Aberdeen airport, so great if you need to get there quickly. The room had a good size and it was clean. Staff was helpful and I had a pleasant stay. It was very quiet at night, so maybe I was lucky there were no night flights when I was there.
